Home Work 11 1. In each case, graph the line that passes through the given points, give the slope and y-intercept for each line, and find the equations of the lines а. (1,1) and (5,5) b. (0,3) and (3,0) c. (-1,1) and (4,2) d. (-6,-3) and (2,6) 2. Plot the following lines, and give the slope and y-intercept for each line а. у = 4 + x b. у = 5 - 2x с. у = -4 + 3х d. у = -2x е. у = -2 x f. у = .50 + 1.5 x 3. Is the number of games won by a major league baseball team in a season related to the team's batting average?

If you were to model the relationship between the mean (or expected) number of games won by a major league team and the team's batting average x , using a straight line, would you expect the slope of the line to be positive or negative? Explain. b. Construct a scattergram of the data. Does the pattern revealed by the scattergram agree with your answer to part a ? c. Write the equation of the least squares line. d. Graph the least squares line on your scattergram. Does your least squares line seem to fit the points on your scattergram?...
